Luxe vs Vapor

Both of these have been all over the nation recently and I want to know which you think is better. I know there are different aspects like efficiency and comfort but I want to know your personal opinion as to which is the best bang for your buck? If you clicked on the poll please at least vote. Also i do not advise using this thread to decide which you want, I already ordered a luxe and created this to help anyone who wanted opinions. Thanks

Do not ever buy a gun based on another person's opinion. Do your research, and see which one suits you best. In my opinion, I like the Luxe better because of it's efficiency and performance. Also, outstanding customer service too

Luxe hands down. It's not a matter of opinion.

EVERYTHING in paintball is opinion. To say it's not is simply foolish.

IMO, Luxe is EXTREMELY uncomfortable in my hands, and the trigger sucks. Quite honestly I'd shoot a $300 Aura over a Luxe I find them so uncomfortable. Vapor comes with a second trigger that doesn't suck, and is comfortable in my hands.

Although both are WAY overpriced for the performance they offer, if I was to choose one or the other, I'd take a Vapor.

The luxe's ergonomics are perfect for me. I've never shot a Vapor but I don't like how it feels in my hands.

Further proof for the OP that relying on others opinions will never get the marker that's perfect for you. 2 posts back to back, first person thinks the Luxe is the least comfortable marker currently made, the next thinks it fits perfect in the hands...

Buy the Luxe. It's a proven platform and a well established company. The support is great coming from both a player and shop manager's point of view. Darryl is a great guy and you will never have a serious issue with a Luxe.

Buy a Vapor if you want a headache and an overpriced piece of **** that will barely work, if ever.

It does come down to trying the gun out. I had a pooty luxe for about 2 months and thought that was gonna be my last gun till i got a chance to pick up a vapor at at great price and well it was AMAZING and havent looked back since. Yeah the first run had a few issues but Machine fixed them and have been amazing since. The first guy that commented is ignorant because the luxe effeciency is bad i know first hand and so do other and my vapor blows it out of the water. I mean the gun comes with a full matching barrel kit and 2 triggers you just cant go wrong. After the palm beach vipers won world cup for their division using vapors i think that proves how realiable the guns are. If a gun simple doesnt work and is a piece of **** like someone stated above then they wouldnt be able to compete so once again, ignorance.

Ok, my vapor was garbage at first but i had the v1 parts, got all of that fixxed up and i really did enjoy the gun. I honestly think the vapor is more comfortable, but hell idk its a toss up, shoot both and decide.

This is a ridiculous statement that should hold no bearing whatsoever.

everytime I see someone with a vapor, 40-60% of the time the vapor is on the work bench being fixed for some problem.

Vapor has no fit and finish to it. I wouldn't pay more than $600 retail for one, as I think the DP guns are finished better.

Luxe by far

For me Luxe. Haven't shot a Vapor though, but that kinda proves my point. I live in Houston and go to 3 different fields and frequent my local proshop. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A VAPOR in person. I am not saying jump on the band wagon, but consider getting advice on how to make a Vapor smoother, more efficient ,etc if no one you know owes one. Not to mention the who 's gonna fix it if you can't. Shipping a marker for maintenance sucks in my opinion.

All of you are biased towards luxe and haven't even shot one or both. They're both solid guns and both of them have their flaws and can be fixed but they're both great guns that are top market guns. I own a vapor and yes it has some problems once and a while but shoots better than a luxe for quietness and both shor the same for everything else. Luxe is a better durable marker that blows all your Air and can be a bit annoying for their feel but is a great marker. The only question is that one is a more durable but another is better efficient

having recently shot a vapor, i can now say the newer versions still arent as good. the efficiency can be higher but i find it ranges too much from bad to decent efficiency
